What MCR Means to Me

So, I was listening to Welcome to the Black Parade tonight, and I started to cry.
Whenever I listen to that song, I still get the same feeling that I got the first time I heard it seven years ago. I still get goosebumps and I still get that incredible feeling of happiness, confidence, and comfort. I suppose that all of the memories hit me at once, so I started to really think about what the band means to me.
Most people will question me for being this into a band. Let me break it down for you.
To me, My Chemical Romance is like that one friend you have that you know will always be there for you no matter what. They are that one friend that never gives up on you when the rest of the world spits in your face.
They are the people that accept you for who you are and make you feel like you belong.
That is how their music makes me feel.
Whenever I'm in a very dark place, they are who I turn to. They have always helped me get through all the crapola that is life.
I never worry when they talk about releasing new material because I know that they would never let me down.
A band like this is extremely rare. Not only are they incredibly talented, but all of them are so empathetic, passionate, compasionate and understanding, and it shows through their music and their lyrics.Plus, they're funny as heck. I mean, I would give anything to spend one day with them. Actually, I would be content with a minute, because they are my heroes and I have wanted to meet them for about seven years now.
They are all I have aside from some very close friends. But you know what?I am perfectly happy with this, because they make me happy. They comfort me. They make me feel accepted and loved in a way that no other band or in a way most people could.
And that is all I've ever wanted in life.
